City of Parks

We dropped off the campervan and spent three nights at a great little hotel in Adelaide.  It was reasonably priced with a kitchen on our floor, laundry facilities, and breakfast included.  The first thing I did was book appointments for a haircut, manicure, and pedicure.  I needed it after all that time in the campervan.  After my morning of appointments I met up with Ben and we went to the Central Markets for lunch and to get stuff to make dinner with.  We also went to the art gallery.  We got to see some impressive Aboriginal Art but were hoping to see more Australian Art than we did, but there were some renovations going on.  At least the museum was free.  We stopped by a park on the way back to the hotel.

Adelaide is a city of parks.  If you look at a map it is basically surrounded by them.  I did a nice run in another one.

We went the Botanic Gardens the next day and to an Aboriginal Art Gallery.  We want to buy some Aboriginal Art as a souvenir and are starting to try to figure out what we want.

This is a monument thanking American soldiers for helping defend Australia in WWII.

We could have spent more time in Adelaide but it was time to fly to Perth.  It was a three and a half hour flight and now there is only a twelve hour time difference between here and the United States.
